apartheid in south africa to the battle over obama care. >> he was fighting against some great injustice. i would make the argument we have a great injustice going on right now in this country with an ever-increasing size of government that has taken over and is controlling people's lives and obama care is front and center in that. >> ryan, what gives? >> i think we have to add apartheid -- >> f.w. de klerk, such a better person than mitch mcconnell. >> we have to add apartheid to that list of issues you shouldn't compare in modern american politics -- >> right. naziism, slavery, apartheid. >> there are issues that were unique historically and no matter how bad you think things are in american politics right now, comparisons are never going to be apt. >> nelson mandela supported universal health care. i think the comparison, like the pope, i think the comparison is kind of -- >> i would tell you this. i think neither side should be using the man, a dead man, deceased man we are honoring to make cheap political shots. >> amen to that. ana, ryan, neera, you guys continue in the green room. >>
initial discussions. at the end of the day obama care is not working well. the website will eventually get up and running at the end of the day. those kind of problems will continue no matter what happens on the budget discussion. our other republicans of your mindset or with many of them tried to do what we saw a few months ago? guest: the sequester is the big issue. that was small budget costs -- what it cuts. -- budget cuts. if we can maintain those cuts, that is a step in the right direction and if we can do something about rolling back obama care, we will see some progress. there are enrollment error stories, talking about the number signing up. what are your concerns on the technical aspect of the website? guest: it is not a failed website, it is a failed health care approach. can washington improve our health care system? they are welcome to. are the white house as they operating with free-market efficiency, i think he admitted that maybe the government should not be running this hold health care system, making those changes. every time the white house signs of a new individual for
, repeal obama care. that's what you were going to say, isn't it? >> no, it isn't. >> okay. >> i think what you have to do is say, we have this debt that is out here that is burdening every single decision that we make. it is a threat to our nation's security, according to admiral mullen. >> what do you do about it? >> this is what you do. what you do is begin to reduce what you're spending, just what every family and small business does. you get your spending under control first. that means that we deal with discretionary and entitlement spending. the second thing you do is deal with regulations. >> which regulations specifically? >> epa, let's start with epa. all of those rules the epa is trying to enforce. you look at the fda with the difficulty that some of our innovators are having with new drugs and trying to get through that. you look at the ftc going after overreach and regulation with piano teachers and so many other areas. >> you mentioned piano teachers -- >> i've got a list. >> i don't even have time to ask you about piano teachers. tennessee congresswoman marsha blackburn, than
and talked about his wife's chances of running for president, joe biden, and his critique of obama care. >> is mrs. clinton running for president? >> i don't know. and i think, and she believes, that the country should spend at least another year working hard on the problems that we have. we have very serious challenges in american and responsibilities around the world. i think it's a big mistake this constant four-year complain. we need to deal with the business we have before us. >> what kind of president do you think vice president joe biden would make? >> if he runs and he's a nominee, i'll try to help him. i think the world of him. i think -- we've been friends. i first remember working with him when he was the chairman of the judiciary committee to the senate and i was a governor and he asked me to testify in a judicial hearing for him. and i had to file a testimony because i had to go to asia. but i've known him for years and years. and i have a very high opinion of him. i care a great deal about him and i think he's done a good job for the president and for the country. >> is it
topic, look obama care. >> when anything happens in the world, a republican senator says this is a distraction from the real issue, which is the failure of obama care. the president would rather be talking about moral issues than the flawed rollout of his health care website. >> republicans must know or feel this issue is not good for them? >> i think it's more subtle. the president is trying to take the health care law and put it in the larger argument for what he wants to get done. it's a legacy item, a priority. the republicans are content to criticize the president on more americans being on food stamps. the question is what do you do about it? that's where the gap is fundamentally in washington today. >> i was trying to get the hash tag do better going. i would argue republicans have a big interest in this. cultivating business and job production here is much an agenda item on their platform as it is for democrats. >> it is. there's an interesting question. what is the republican agenda for poverty and inequality. this republican will cite people like teddy roosevelt
meeting with katherine sebelius. she took responsibility for the obama care snafus. the white house has not said how many times sebelius did sit down face-to-face with the president. earlier i asked how this report reflects on the white house, the president and his management style. >> i was surprised this week when the president told chris matthews in an interview that he really didn't think he had to reflect upon his management style, everything was fine in the white house, the real problem was the fact that we have such large signatuagencies government, big bureaucracies, it's hard to get things down. he's the chief executive. he's had five years to address that issue if that's what he thinks. if he thinks a bureaucracy is a problem like this, why did he assign the health care issue to them? i think this president has many good assets, i think there are many good things about him but the management team does have left i think especially in recent times left much to be desired. >> and julian, do you have see this as a leadership issue? >> yes. it could be a defining part of his presid
but i don't know why he says you don't have any. >> attitude. the only thing we can do is obama care. all the while obamacare is crumbling. what we are seeing is people just are shocked first of all that they can't keep their plan that they were promised that they could. they are shocked at the premium increases. wait until the deductibles start to hit in january. so we have got a very serious situation. those of us in the house believe much, much better prospects for patient-centered plan. >> do you talk to him at all? >> i have talked to the president, and, again, i don't have a great opportunity to do so because the president really doesn't engage on capitol hill. that's part of the problem. and it's not that way with all those in the white house. in fact, i have had a great relationship with the vice president. i'm able to bounce ideas off of him. but, unfortunately, somehow the communication doesn't always happen with the president. >> why? i mean, supposedly, you would think work together, he would call you, you would call him. >> i mean at this point, perhaps maybe he will beg
went after republicans on obama care challenging them on these ideas of repeal and saying that republicans owe it to the american people to tell them what they're for when it comes to health care reform, not just being against the affordable care act. a couple things going on in the president's speech, rallying the base, also going after republicans laying markers down for the budget battles to come. >> that issue is becoming more and more talked about, income inequality, wealth disparity if you like, which is very marked in the united states. is there a sense in washington this could become a big election issue? >> i think it could be. one thing the president did mention and white house officials have said is that this is sort of a preview of some of what he'll be talking about in the state of the union speech. not only today is, he's going to be talking about when he gives his state of the union address. that takes us into the midterm election cycle we're going to be seeing getting very, very fierce in the next several months. yes, you're going to hear the president talk
administration, it comes on the heels of all the bad news about obama care. brianna keilar is at the white house this morning. good morning, brianna. >> reporter: good morning to you, carol. this is positive news for the obama administration. we don't have official reaction yet, that normally comes later generally in this hour so we'll be looking to are that but i think the read -- we've been through so many reports i think we have a sense of what the reaction will be, this say positive trend, still more work to do and you said carol, this allows president obama to focus on the economy, something he already tried to do this week in an address where he outlined new economic initiatives like the minimum wage, like increasing investments and infrastructure and education, so this gives him a little fuel to do that as the rollout to obama care has been so rocky. this is certainly something the white house is welcoming here. >> we'll check back. brianna keilar live at the white house this morning. >>> and now let's head back to washington and bring in wolf blitzer for more on our special coverage of t
always talking about big government and the problems with the obama care rollout. and if we can put it on the screen, here was his answer. and the challenge, i think, we have going forward is not so much my personal management style or particular issues around white house organization. it actually has to do with what i refer to earlier is, we have some of the big agencies, some of which are outdated, some of which are not designed properly. wow! that's the greatest news of the week. he's saying big government is like an old de soto at a time when we want to drive efficient sports cars. the only question i have is, isn't obama care just another one of those? back to you. >> all right, rick, thank you so much. rick santelli in chicago. >>> nobody puts baby in the corner without an -- without an ipad.

/frank coming up. we have, obviously, obama care. is that going to possibly be a hindrance to growth and expansion next year or is it just going to be a stimulus for your line of work? >> you know, i don't know if it will be a stimulus for our line of work. but for the companies we work with, aca hasn't impacted them that much. they have more administrative costs, slightly, but it really hasn't impacted them that much because they all have 200 or more employees. dodd/frank, it's been a work in process for a long time. i don't know if there's anything necessarily today that's going to affect it. i think the one thing, the headwind is, potential more regulation as well. >> that's always going to be the case. >> always. >> when have you ever said, there's not enough regulation out there? what is your biggest headwind? >> our biggest headwind, i think, is the government shutdown potential, the debt ceiling issue. frankly, we need comprehensive tax legislation. and if we got that, i think it would make us all more competitive. certainly help our business, i'm sure. but those two or three
was not really going to last because what is apparent now is obama care, the affordable care act is here to stay. so they now need to offer some changes if that is the route they are going to take. but what they are really focusing now -- which is also a big problem -- iv bare the back end problem spirit on the front end, the user experience is working well but the information transmitted to the insurers is getting garbled or incomplete and that could prevent people from getting the insurance coverage come january 1. on a more serious moment, tragedy at the white house yesterday. a poor child was run over at the christmas party and the first lady came to the rescue. what was the reaction at the white house to this atrocious act? wasn'tve to tell you, i houseing the white response to this crisis mode they are probably in.

of the pending regulations not surprisingly come from obama care. department of health and human services says the regulatory plans are framed strengthening health care for americans. according to the competitive enterprise institute, the new regulatory plan from hhs comes with a price tag of nearly $190 billion. wayne cruise says the overall prize of for regulatory agenda for the administration will top $1.8 trillion a year. >> back in the '90s the federal budget itself was not even 1.8 trillion. now we have this entire $1.8 trillion hidden tax you could say of government compliance and intervention costs imposed in the economy. like anything else, that, you know, any tax that businesses pay often gets passed down to the consumers. that is certainly the case with regulatory costs. what it does it makes, it makes, prices higher for the things that consumers want. >> reporter: the epa is also one of the top regulation producers. it is facing a major lawsuit before the supreme court in february. by the way regulatory agenda we got from the administration, it includes this disclaimer. unified age
those new enrollees is an unlikely set of workers benefitting from obama care. legal prostitutes in nevada. until now, nevada's prostitutes had been shunned by health insurance companies. nevada is the only state where prostitution is legal and where brothels are regulated and controlled. currently there are 19 legal brothels in nevada and they employ 500 prostitutes throughout the state of nevada. >>> president obama has also announced a new initiative in the battle against aids. the announcement made at a white house event yesterday marking world aids day. the president is redirecting $100 million into a project to find aids therapies. >>> topping the health headlines, researchers now link migraines to chemicals found in common household products. that chemical, bpa, is found in plastic ware and food packaging. it may cause a hormonal response and cause debilitating headaches. tests on rats show high levels increase sensitivity to light, sound and other migraine symptoms. researchers are calling for human studies. >>> also making health headlines this morning, dispelling the my

president obama coming off the white house announcement that the health care website is mostly fixed will make a new push today to get more americans enrolled in insurance. the white house is really racing against the clock now. >> reporter: that's right. and, george, this is a big, new p.r. push beyond just trying to get more people to enroll. the white house is trying to turn public opinion on this by reminding people of what they say are the benefits of the health care law for everybody. things like ending discrimination for people who have pre-existing conditions. and expanding coverage to millions of people who never had health insurance. and there will be a political component to the president's message today, and this push that you will see virtually every day for the next three weeks. he's going to be saying and the white house will be saying, the republicans simply have no alternative to this health law. >> you saw the website working at a much higher capacity yesterday. but still, a lot of bugs that could surprise people as they enroll. >> reporter: yes. and one of the bigg
